Do you as someone who visits a page to read an article like the fact that a pop-up box appears when you're trying to read an article? Do you tend to opt-in, if that's an option, or do whatever the message is in that box? Or do you find these just overall annoying? I know I do.
As a blog owner... do you find these pop-up boxes to convert pretty well for you, whatever it is you're asking them to do in this box? Also, have you considered how you feel about these boxes when visiting someone else's website?
Just wondering if these boxes are worth using or opting for another option like ribbons at the top of a page or something in your sidebar.
